        LA MORT D'ARTHUR The Most Ancient and Famous History of the Renowned Prince Arthur, and the Knights of the Round Table

      London: R. Wilks, 1816. Hardcover. Very Good/No jacket as issued. Bound in full, 19th century leather with gilt spine decorations, gilt decorations to the boards, leather spine labels and marbled endpapers. Each volume contains an engraved frontispiece and vignette title page. In addition, vol.1 contains the folding plate of the Round Table. The work is illustrated as follows: vol.1) engraved frontispiece of the death of Sir Lancelot; vignette title page of the Lady of the Lake offering Arthur the sword; and the fold-out plate depicting Arthur and his knights at the Round Table; vol.2) engraved frontispiece of Sir Tristram & Isolde; vignette title page of the battle of Sir Tristram and Sir Lancelot; and vol.3) engraved frontispiece of Arthur drawing the sword from the stone; and vignette title page of Sir Percival fighting the 'serpent.' The printed title pages, in each volume, are those of the 1634 edition. This is a very good, handsome set. This is an important edition of Sir Thomas Malory's compilation of French and English Arthurian romances. It marks the start of modern interest in Arthuriana. First published in 1485 by William Caxton, Le Morte d'Arthur is the birthplace and source for most subsequent Arthurian literature including T.H. White's The Once and Future King, Tennyson's Idylls of the King, and Steinbeck's The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights. The 1485 Caxton edition was followed by editions in 1498, 1529, 1557 and 1634. No further editions were printed until two competing editions were issued in 1816, of which this is one. 1816 stated. 24mo; 5 in. tall. In three volumes (326, 381 & 377 pp.). Some professional work was done to the spines (vol.1 with head and foot chips filled in); some light scuffing to the boards; some wear at the corners; some light foxing to the plates. The set is housed in a clamshell box, constructed by NYS binder Jack Fitterer. The box is done in leather & cloth with gilt lines and a striking image of Excalibur (given by the Lady of the Lake to Arthur) held by a hand rising from the water. Also imprinted are the title 'Prince Arthur' and the date '1816'. This is a scarce and important set protected by a lovely clamshell box!" Lupack, scholar.

Whatman 1818 & 1820"Contemporary full green roan, covers decoratively bordered in gilt, spine elaborately tooled and lettered in gilt, gilt board edges, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt.Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-1677) originally published his Dance of Death illustrations in 1651 under the title "Mortalium Nobilitas" The Dance of Death, also known as La Danse Macabre, is an artistic genre of late-medieval allegory on the universality of death.No matter one's station in life, the Dance of Death unites all. La Danse Macabre consists of the dead or personified Death summoning representatives from all walks of life to dance along to the grave, typically with a Pope, an Emperor, a King, a child, and a laborer. They were produced to remind people of the fragility of their lives and how vain were the glories of earthly life. Its origins are postulated from illustrated sermon texts; the earliest recorded visual scheme was a now-lost mural in the Saints Innocents Cemetery in Paris dating from 1424 to 1425.

A touch of foxing in places otherwise a very good copy. Third edition.

Abbey calls for a plate of St Helena not present here but as demand for copies would have been great, copies may well have been issued ad hoc with varying numbers of plates.

        Lettres sur le Caucase et la Géorgie suivies d’une relation d’un Voyage en Perse en 1812. Relation d’un Voyage a Tauris en 1812.

      Hamburg: Chez Perthes & Besser ("Se vend à St. Petersbourg chez Pluchart, à Londres chez T. Boosey, à Paris chez Treuttel & Wurtz.") 1816 - Octavo (20.5 x 13 cm). Later quarter imitation leather binding; [3], 4-230, [3], 234-353, [2] pp. [1] map and 4 engraved vignettes in the text (signed S. D. Bendixen and F. A. de la Belle); errata page. Inventory stamp of the Gatchina Palace Library (Gatchinskii dvorets); half title signed "Casimir". This copy lacks the folding map of the Caucasus. Edges of boards lightly rubbed, light stains to front endpapers, p. 163 with neat tape repair, a few light stains/foxing throughout, old description affixed to front free end paper; two pages with tiny hole, one marginal annotation in pencil. This account of Frederika Afanas'eva von Freygang’s (nee Kudriavskaia) journey to the Caucasus in the years 1811-1812 is one of the earliest such accounts by a Russian woman writer. The correspondence sent by Frederika to her husband (then head of a military command to the Transcaucasus region during the latter stages of the Russo-Persian War of 1804-1813) chronicles her arduous journey through the Russian steppe and the main range of the Caucasus Mountains with her three children. The descriptive passages of the people, customs, and geography encountered along the way are rendered in the flowing French idiom of the Russian aristocracy and represent a valuable record of the early era of Russian colonial expansion in the region. Freygang’s impressions and descriptions were of undoubted importance to the military administration of the time and to the aristocratic readership, as the provenance of this copy illustrates (it stems from the Imperial collection of the Gatchina Palace Library). An important work from an early nineteenth-century female author. The second part of the book, by Frederika Freygang’s husband Wilhelm, is a historico-political account of the Transcaucasus region compiled from notes taken in the field. Freygang’s military sorties took him to the territories of the present day nations of Georgia, Armenia, Iran, and Azerbaijan, and his account of these lands, then mostly under the administration of the Persian Empire, is an early exemplar of the colonial and orientalist works that would come into vogue with the reading public in the following decades. Together an early and important work with broad anthropological and historical interest. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Alastor; or, the Spirit of Solitude: and Other Poems

      vi, [2], 101 pp., one blank leaf. 8vo, orig. grey boards (spine with a small defect), orig. printed paper label on spine, edition binder's embossed stamp on inside front cover "J:Syrett," uncut. London: Printed for Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, et al., 1816. First edition, and a splendid copy in original boards, of Shelley's first major achievement; this copy bears on the free front endpaper the ownership signature -- "Tighe" -- of what is almost certainly George William Tighe (1776-1837), the common-law husband of Margaret King, Lady Mount Cashell. The Shelleys moved to Pisa at the suggestion of Lady Mount Cashell (at that time living with Tighe as "Mrs. Mason"), a former pupil of Mary Wollstonecraft. Tighe and "Mrs. Mason" had settled in Pisa where she studied medicine with Andrea Vaccá Berlinghieri at the city's university. Tighe was an agriculturalist and provided Shelley with information on chemistry, biology, and statistics. In 1821, Tighe became involved in the attempts of Claire Clairmont, Mary Shelley's step-sister, to remove her daughter by Byron from a convent in Ravenna. Tighe made a secret trip to Ravenna and Bagnacavallo to find out what he could about the convent and Allegra's treatment there. Claire Clairmont wrote in her journal on 21 April 1821 that she had dreamt that G.W. Tighe had fetched Allegra back from Bagnacavallo; years later -- sometime between 1869 and her death in 1879 -- she told E.J. Trelawny that Tighe had gone to fetch Allegra but as McAleer says, "Tatty's visit may have grown entirely out of the dream Claire had on April 21 -- his passport records no such trip."-Mc Aleer, Sensitive Plant, p. 162. Certainly Claire Clairmont later thought of G.W. Tighe as a protector and brave and courteous gentleman. This copy comes from the family library descending from Lady Mount Cashell, which has close Shelley connections. On page 97, line 2, the first word "And" has been crossed out in ink. There is a modern slip of paper laid-in there with a note "Shelley." We believe the person who inserted the note was someone in the position to know. Fine condition. Preserved in a box. .

        Voyage de Découvertes aux Terres Australes . [With:] . Partie Historique rédigée par M. F. Péron. Atlas par MM. Lesueur et Petit .

      L'Imprimerie Imperiale, Paris 1816 - 3 volumes (2 vols. quarto text [12 x 8 1/2 inches]; large quarto atlas, two parts in one [13 1/2 x 10 inches]). Historique text: half-titles, 2 folding tables, engraved portrait frontispiece; Historique atlas: engraved titles (part one with vignette), 40 stipple and line engraved plates (23 hand coloured, 2 double-page), 14 maps (2 folding). Extra-illustrated with an additional portrait of Baudin bound as the frontispiece in vol. 1 text, and 25 additional unnumbered engraved plates (9 hand coloured, including 2 plates of engraved sheet music), comprising all the plates added to the 1824 second edition atlas. Nineteenth century green calf backed marbled paper covered boards, flat spines divided into compartments with gilt roll tools, lettered in gilt in the second and fourth compartments, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers The rare first edtion of the official narrative of the Baudin-Freycinet Expedition: a unique example extra-illustrated with additional plates from the second edition. The expedition was sent out by the French government in 1800 with orders to complete the cartographic survey of the Australian coast. Commanded by Nicolas Baudin, the expedition left France in 1800 and sailed via Mauritius to the Australian coast in the region of Cape Leeuwin, arriving in May 1801. Peron sailed as naturalist on the expedition and Freycinet as cartographer. The vessels, Geographe and Naturaliste, sailed north from Cape Leeuwin. The expedition surveyed the coast and made observations on the natural history and inhabitants, until they crossed to Timor. After three months the two ships set out for Tasmania, the party continuing to make detailed surveys, and went on to Sydney. They then undertook a complete survey of the southern coast and an examination of the northern coast before returning to Mauritius where, near the end of 1803, Baudin died. It was a celebrated voyage which brought back to France the most important collection of natural history specimens in the history of the French Museum, as well as a wealth of geographical and other information. The narrative of the expedition was begun by Peron, and completed by Freycinet after Peron's death. A tacit agreement between Peron and Freycinet, both of whom disliked Baudin, kept the commander's name mostly absent from the present official account of the expedition. Flinders completed his survey of the Australian coast before Baudin, but his imprisonment by the French in Mauritius for seven years resulted in the French exploration account being published first. Consequently, the Baudin-Freycinet narrative includes the first complete and fully detailed map of the Australian continent. It is justly one of the most famous depictions of Australia ever produced, with virtually the entire southern coast labeled "Terre Napolean," indicating possible French colonial ambitions. The Atlas Historique contains a group of beautiful color plates, mostly of natural history specimens, many of which depict what the French saw during their important visit to Tasmania. In 1824, a revised second edition of the narrative was published containing 23 additional plates (including four new portraits of aborigines), as well as two plates of engraved sheet music, being the earliest notation of any indigenous Australian music and a redering of the Abortiginal cooee call. Unusually, the present set of the first edition is bound with these additional plates as extra-illustrations, as well as an additional inlaid portrait of Baudin after Joseph Jauffret stipple engraved by Mecou.

      John Howe and Son, Halifax 1816 - xxv, 220 pages [complete]. Full leather, with title in gilt to spine and THE PROTHONOTARY in gilt to front. Contemporary binding is sound and hinges secure. Two blank endpapers at front and at rear. A pleasing example of this second volume of Statutes, especially with this association: Supreme Court, Horton in pen to front cover, and again to front endpaper above: The Office of Prothonotary Clerk of the Crown. "In 1774 an act of the Legislature was passed, first establishing the circuits of the Supreme Court. This act authorised the holding of courts at Horton, Annapolis, and Cumberland, the sittings to last at each place not more than five days, and two judges always to be present." [Eaton: History of Kings County, 160]. Samuel Denison was Prothonotary in 1814, and Samuel Leonard Allison from 1821-1834 [Eaton, 169]. By 1816 the circuit covered the entire mainland and the Supreme Court consisted of five members: Sampson Salter Blowers, Brenton Halliburton, Solicitor General James Stewart, Lewis M. Wilkins Sr. and, exclusively as associate circuit judge, Peleg Wiswall [see chapter 4 by Cahill and Phillips in The Supreme Court of Nova Scotia, 1754-2004]. Offsetting to pastedowns and facing endpaper; else remarkably fresh with only moderate staining; no marginalia.

Contemporary half calf, spines with gilt lines and red gilt lettered labels. Very scarce work on the flora of Northern Italy, particularly of the plants growing in the area of Pavia. According to Stafleu & Cowan only the second volume has the plates coloured, which is also the case in the present copy. Domenico Nocca (1758-1841) was an Italian clergyman and botanist, professor of botany and director of the botanical gareden at Pavia. Co-author Giovanni Batista (1765-1831) was an Italian physician and botanist at Torino, pupil of Allioni. The colouring of the plates is excellent.//Stafleu & Cowan 6842.

        THE HISTORY OF GEORGIA, CONTAINING BRIEF SKETCHES OF THE MOST REMARKABLE EVENTS, UP TO THE PRESENT DAY

Toning, scattered light foxing. About very good. The first history of the state of Georgia and a standard work of southern history as well as an interesting imprint. McCall's history covers events from 1733 to 1783, with the first volume going through 1773 and the second being wholly devoted to the Revolution. The second volume was written largely from personal experience, since McCall was a Revolutionary officer. Willingham says the book is written "intelligently and well" and is "a landmark in the development of Georgia literature." Streeter calls it "the chief source on the border wars with the Creeks and Cherokees. This is one of the rarest of state histories." HOWES M33. DE RENNE, p.344. CHURCH 1305. SABIN 42973.

        Reise nach dem Austral-Lande, in der Absicht die Entdeckung desselben zu vollenden; unternommen in den Jahren 1801, 1802 und 1803. Aus dem Englischen von Ferdinand Götze

      Weimar: Landes-Industire-Comptoir, 1816. Spine slightly rubbed but in generally excellent condition, with the map in fine state.. Octavo, large folding map coloured in outline; an attractive copy in contemporary half calf, flat spine banded and decorated in gilt, leather labels. The very rare first edition in German of Flinders' great voyage account, the official narrative of his classic voyage of discovery in the Investigator, the first circumnavigation of Australia, 'an enlightening and fascinating story of brilliant navigation and discovery' (DNB). Flinders' voyage was a full-scale expedition to discover and explore the entire coastline of Australia (the name that Flinders himself preferred and championed). As Rodney Davidson points out, "the German edition is of particular interest because of its accompanying map": the map identifies Dutch, English and French discoveries on the Australian continent, picking them out in different colours. The text was translated from the English by Ferdinand Götze, who adds a brief preface and some explanatory footnotes; the appendices and two nautical/technical chapters that appeared in the original English edition are omitted. Flinders' work was of great interest to its German audience, then and now. As Henze has pointed out, 'Seine Karten übertreffen die Cookschen an Reichhaltigkeit und Präzision und waren für einige Gebiete noch während des Zweiten Weltkriegs in Gebrauch. Sein Reisewerk steht in der Entdeckungsgeschickte des fünften Kontinents nach Form und Inhalt ohne Gegenstück da' [''His maps surpass even those of Cook in their richness and accuracy, and continued in use for some areas even during the Second World War. His chief significance for the literature of discovery is in his exploration of the fifth continent, unparalleled in its scope and skilful execution'].Although separately issued this was also published as the sixth volume in the series 'Neue Bibliothek der wichtigsten Reisebeschreibungen': in that form it would contain a series title, not present here in this undisturbed volume.

        CAMPAIGN OF WATERLOO, Illustrated with Engravings of les Quatre Bras, la Belle Aliance, Hougoumont, La Haye Sainte and Other Principal Scenes of Action; Including a Correct Military Plan, Together with a Grand View of the Battle on a Large Scale. To Which is Prefixed a History of the Campaign, Compiled From Official Documents and Other Authentic Sources

      London: For Robert Bowyer by T. Bensley and Son, 1816. First edition, earliest issue, printed within a year of the actual events. With six very impressive hand-coloured aquatint engraved scenes on four plates, one of which is folding, a plate of portraits of the British and their allies, a plate of portraits of the French Royal family, the family of Buonaparte, French generals and statesmen, and an engraved map of the battle. Folio (480 x 325mm), handsomely bound in contemporary, very early quarter deep purple morocco over dark blue-gray cloth embossed with a pattern of leafy vines, the backing trimmed with gilt rolled repeating devices of flower and scollop, the paper used for the plates bearing the papermaker's watermark "J. Whatman" and dated 1816 (2) 34, 10 pp. The text and all plates beautifully preserved, the binding with front hinge detached, easily repairable. FIRST EDITION, EARLIEST ISSUE OF THIS VERY IMPRESSIVE CONTEMPORARY ACCOUNT OF WATERLOO INCLUDING SIX FINE FOLIO-SIZED HAND-COLOURED ILLUSTRATIONS. The fine aquatints show; the French troops conveying cannons from the field of battle on July 24, 1815; Hougomont, looking towards Waterloo; La Haye Sainte, looking towards Waterloo; Les Qautre Bas looking towards Waterloo; Les Qautre Bas facing Genappe; and lastly a magnificent folding view of the battlefield from Mont St. Jean at the time of the charge against Napoleon's troops by the British navy led by Sir Arthur Wellesley (Duke of Wellington), general commander of the allied troops, the evening of June 18, 1815. Added to this is the impressive map, or plan, of the battle as it was on Sunday, June 18 when Napoleon's army unsuccessfully faced the troops led by the Duke of Wellington and Prince Blucher. Thus one of the great pivotal moments in European history, the ending of the Napoleonic Wars, the end of Napoleon's reign as Emperor and the end of French hegemony in Europe. Tooley notes that this work was reprinted for several years, the dated papermaker's watermarks being the best way to denote copies from the original year of publication. The plates in this copy are on paper dated 1816, the year of original publication.

        VITA DEL CAVALIERE GIAMBATTISTA BODONI TIPOGRAFO ITALIANO E CATALOGO CHRONOLOGICO DELLE SUE EDIZIONI

      Parma: Dalla Stamperia Ducale, 1816. FIRST EDITION y. This classic biography of the enormously influential Italian printer has all of the production values he held dear: fine paper, generous margins, restrained composition, and, of course, beautiful typography. It also includes the first catalogue raisonné of his publications, described by Birrell & Garnett as "indispensable for the study of his work." The son of a printer, Bodoni (1740-1813) began his career in 1758, at the Roman press of the Vatican's missionary office. Working as a compositor, he distinguished himself with his gift for Middle Eastern languages, and eventually began cutting his own punches. After eight years he decided to leave Rome, hoping to travel to England to train with John Baskerville, whose clear types and unadorned composition he much admired. Illness unfortunately kept him in Italy, thwarting the possible meeting of two printing geniuses. When the Duke of Parma established his royal press in 1768, Bodoni was tapped to head it, and he soon established a reputation for printing excellence, becoming the principal European rival of Didot. By 1790, he was receiving offers to head presses in Rome and other cities, and in order to keep him in Parma, the duke allowed him to open his own private press, where he began to print the Greek and Roman classics that have been sought after by collectors down to the present day. Bodoni created more typefaces than any other typographer before or since--an 1840 inventory of his type counted 25,491 punches and 50,283 matrices--and his type cutting is beautifully displayed in the posthumously published masterwork, "Manuale Tipografico." He is one of a handful of 18th century printers whose work continues to influence typography and design: the "Bodoni" font has been popular since 1910, continuing into the digital era.. 248 x 159 mm. (9 3/4 x 6 1/4"). With the list of subscribers in volume I. Two volumes. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary burgundy roan over matching buckram, raised bands, spines with gilt-ruled compartments, gilt titling, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Both volumes with engraved frontispiece, that in volume I featuring a medallion portrait of Bodoni and that in volume II depicting an angel beside a printing press; original tissue guards. With laid-in 19th century manuscript bibliographical note in French. Brooks 1170; Bigmore and Wyman I, 69; Birrell & Garnett 195. Spines sunned to light brown and a little spotted, short crack to head of one joint, extremities a bit rubbed, boards lightly chafed, but the binding entirely sound, and A VERY FINE COPY INTERNALLY--especially clean, smooth, and bright, with extremely wide margins. This classic biography of the enormously influential Italian printer has all of the production values he held dear: fine paper, generous margins, restrained composition, and, of course, beautiful typography.

        Des vésanies, ou maladies mentales

      1816 - VIII-308 pages, un tableau Paris, chez l'auteur, 1816, in-8, VIII-308 pages, un tableau dépliant, demi-basane fauve de l'époque, dos lisse et orné, ex-libris J. J. frappé en pied, tranches jonquille, Édition originale de cet ouvrage, le dernier sur lequel Dubuisson travailla, avant de perdre ses facultés mentales. L'auteur divise les maladies mentales en 5 catégories - hypocondrie, vésanies partielles, manie, démence et idiotisme - et reconnait les causes héréditaires, physiques et morales de la folie. L'ouvrage contient un tableau statistique dépliant, "servant à établir les proportions de guérison des aliénés" dans les hôpitaux de Charenton, Bicêtre, la Salpêtrière, dans les établissements d'Esquirol et dans celui de Dubuisson lui-même ; en Angleterre à Bethlem, Saint-luc et dans les établissements de la Société des Quakers près d'York ; à Berlin en Prusse ; et à Vienne en Autriche. Jacquelin Dubuisson (1770-1836) fit ses études à Paris et dirigea une maison de santé au petit Charonne, dans laquelle étaient accueillis à la fois les aliénés et les détenus politique. En 1812, il publia une Dissertation sur la manie. Claude-François de Malet était placé dans son établissement lorsqu'il ourdit son coup d'état contre Napoléon ; cet évènement semble avoir eu raison de la santé mentale de Dubuisson. Exemplaire provenant de la bibliothèque de Frantz Adam (1886-1968) à Charenton, avec son ex-libris manuscrit et la date de 1913 : interne puis psychiatre réputé à Charenton et à hôpital psychiatrique de Rouffach en Alsace, Frantz Adam fut aide-major puis médecin-major au 23e régiment d'infanterie pendant la Grande Guerre ; il est reconnu pour ses photographies prises sur le front et pour ses souvenirs, publiés en 1931 sous le titre « Sentinelles. prenez garde à vous. ».

        Den Haag, feest op het Malieveld - Dirk Sluyter naar Haatje Pieters Oosterhuis, 1816.

      FEEST OP HET MALIEVELD"Volksfeest gevierd in 's Gravenhage den 16de September 1816'. Ets met aquatint vervaardigd door Dirk Sluyter naar een tekening van Haatje Pieters Oosterhuis, uitgegeven te Amsterdam door J.C. Hagedoorn. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd (met latere toevoegingen). Afm. (prent) 33,2 x 46,7 cm.Er werd een volksfeest gehouden in 's Gravenhage ter ere van de aankomst van Willem II, erfprins der Nederlanden en Anna Paulowna, grootvorstin van Rusland na hun huwelijk in Sint Petersburg in februari 1816. We zien dat een enorme menigte zich op het Malieveld heeft verzameld, waaronder veel soldaten.Muzikanten, goochelaars en acrobaten vertonen op een groot podium hun kunsten: een man met een kruiwagen loopt over een touw naar een hoge stellage. In kraampjes en vanaf kruiwagens wordt eten en drinken verkocht. Op de achtergrond rijden de koetsen van het jonggehuwde paar en hun gevolg.De couranten uit de dagen erna berichtten over de "warme vreugde over de gelukkige aankomst van het Vorstelijk Paar en de ongekunstelde blijdschap, met welke alle harten vervuld waren.'"Reeds van den morgen af, was het grootste gedeelte van de bevolking dezer residentie op de been; terwijl aan alle toegangen tot dezer stad de toevloed van zowel rij en vaartuigen , als te voet aankomende bewoners van andere steden en dorpen onbeschrijfelijk groot was. De menigte aanschouwers in en om het Malieveld, waar verschillende verrigtingen van koorddansers en andere verlastingen gratis voor het publiek gegeven werden, was talloos.'"De Koninklijke familie reed geruime tijd door het veld en ontving aanhoudende ondubbelzinnige blijken van volksliefde en achting. Des avonds leverden de illuminatien van de stad het schilderschtigste gezicht op; de pracht en smaak, waarmede alle pleinen en straten en vooral de Vijverberg, het Voorhout en Boschkant verlicht en versierd waren, gaan alle beschrijving te boven.'Prijs: € 1.650,- (incl. lijst).
